"Care for mum with cancer"

About: Torbay Hospital

Anything else?

We are writing to express our sincere thanks and gratitude regarding the care of our late mother, Mrs Naomi McKinnon. Naomi was under the care of both The Ricky Grant Unit and Turner Ward, as well as being treated by Haemotology, Dermatology and Cardiology. The medical staff at The Ricky Grant Unit and Turner Ward showed exceptional care and compassion, as well as providing the best possible medical attention. Each member of staff we came into contact with was caring, professional and had the interests of our mother at heart. While we are deeply saddened with her passing, we take great comfort from the fact she was treated by outstanding staff in an amazing hospital. Please do pass these comments onto the staff at The Ricky Grant Unit and the Turner Ward and thank them for their generous support of our mother. Kind Regards, Bruce and Liz McKinnon
